days to bring back a constitutional government. though we have a lot of other issue that are going on in society, that can be handled at different points with different methed others, i'm a constitutionist and i believe the founding document needs to be respected. because it involves things like civil liberties which makes us americans, these are thing that if you are republican or democrat makes no difference, things that will pull us together. also with the economy which is another big sticking point. we are supposed to have constitutionly -- the congress is supposed to take care of our monetary policy but since we shrugged that off to another entity and it's not doing a good job of it. these are the things i want to get back to doing as a congressman if you will elect me, we will see a lot -- we will see things happen differently in this country. >> let's get to some of the questions, one thing people are wondering about is the economy. 16 trillon dollars in debt. unemployment at 8%, housing market is a mess. what would do you? >> you have to face it by addressing monetary pol

of government, rather than air to be arrests and monarchees. the united states isn't run by the wealthiest or by some sort of birth rite. we participate by our vote and elect leaders to represent us. president lincoln's gettysburg address is a constant reminder. the government of the people, by the people, and for the people. shall not perish from this earth. one person, one vote. that's a precious right. that's liberal. believing that government should be active in supporting social and political change. so there's the constitution. the founders built in the ability to amend it and to pass laws to form a more perfect union. things like, oh, abolishing slavery and segregation, giving women the right to vote and to choose, repealing don't ask don't tell so regardless of who you love you can serve in the military. plus our government has programs to help level the playing field so that everyone can succeed. like the g.i. bill. the lily ledbetter fair pay act. medicare. pell grants. head start. unemployment. is there anyone who hasn't benefited from at least one of these programs? fairness. t
